From the Niagara Falls Review:

Casino Niagara has started the next phase of a $7-million investment it says will “deliver an elevated” gaming and entertainment experience for all visitors.

The current phase of the project focuses on a transformation of the second level into a destination for sports fans, food enthusiasts, entertainment seekers and visitors.

Completion is scheduled for this fall.

The project includes a $3.5 million spend on infrastructure and redesign for a fresh entertainment experience that greets visitors as they walk through the doors.

An additional $3.5 million is being invested in technology and gaming, to offer guests the next generation of gaming.

Falls council against casino theatre proposal

No Comments

From the Niagara Falls Review:

Niagara Falls city council voted against a proposal that would see a 5,000-seat entertainment theatre built above the bus area at the back of Fallsview Casino.

Politicians backed a staff report recommending they don’t support an amendment to the site-specific development agreement, as requested by Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation, which would allow the theatre to go five metres higher than currently permitted.

Both staff and council are concerned the proposal would obstruct views of the falls for nearby hotels.

How should Falls celebrate Canada’s 150th b-day?

From the Niagara Falls Review:

It’s still 11 months until Canada’s 150th birthday, but Niagara Falls officials are not wasting any time when it comes to preparing for next year’s grand celebration.

A survey is up on the city’s website (www.niagarafalls.ca/) asking the public to help them plan for the big bash in 2017. The survey is expected to remain on the website until Aug. 26.

Lori Albanese, the city’s community development co-ordinator, said once a Canada Day event concludes, officials immediately begin planning for the next one, trying to secure sponsorships, entertainment and volunteers.

And with the next Canada Day being the country’s sesquicentennial, Albanese said her committee wants the public to have even a bigger say on how the city’s celebration will unfold.

Clifton Hill redevelopment taking shape

No Comments

From the Niagara Falls Review:

Consumer demands are changing, and Clifton Hill has to change with them, says Tim Parker, general manager of the Ripley’s Believe It or Not! in Niagara Falls.

“The consumers are demanding more types of entertainment, rather than the stagnant entertainment that we’ve had for years. So we’ve answered the call,” said Parker.

Ripley’s was scheduled to re-open as a revamped interactive attraction along the popular tourist strip Thursday evening, or Friday.

Since November, the attraction has undergone a complete update of its “odditorium.”

“We sort of were status quo for many years, and I think consumers now don’t want status quo — they don’t want to look at the same things they’ve looked at,” said Parker.

I’m not sure when the official re-opening was, but I did notice they are open today.
